Ab initio airline pilot selection

Selecting aspiring airline pilots and meeting the needs of the airline industry is the sort of challenge upon which we thrive.

If you are considering launching an airline pilot career programme, let our years of expertise in this area help you develop a programme that is truly unique to your airline.

It all begins with rigorous selection.

In 2003, we launched CTC WINGS our flagship airline pilot career programme, through which we have selected and trained thousands of new pilots for Airline Partners worldwide.

Graduates from CTC WINGS are considered to be amongst the best in the industry.

Our team of experienced assessors can screen applications using our own web-based tool - electronic Mass Application (eMA).
